Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: October 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A big, muscular espresso. Smoky, sweet-toned aroma with hints of apricot-toned chocolate. The massive body and syrupy if slightly astringent mouthfeel tend to overwhelm the chocolaty fruit in demitasse and finish, but all turns out well in milk, where the body remains fat and the chocolate blooms deeply and darkly.

Notes: Reading Coffee Roasters specializes in "gourmet coffees medium roasted the old fashioned European way ... Never bitter or burnt!" according to its website. Visit www.readingcoffee.com or call 800-331-6713 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who evaluate clothing by feel rather than look.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
